With no lease there are really no set rules to the tenancy besides those laid out by New York Statute. According to the law, the landlord can terminate the tenancy with no reason. Tenants are entitled to a livable, sanitary and safe park, including all common areas, roads, and lots. Lease provisions inconsistent with this right are illegal and unenforceable. Failure to provide water, other essential services, or to repair sewer problems are examples of a violation of this warranty. Park owners may not willfully or intentionally fail to provide any services or facility once they have agreed to do so. Section 233 also set out rules:
"Section 233 of the Real Property Law
- The right to be free from retaliation if you make a complaint or join a tenant association;
- The right to a rent discount if you participate in the STAR (or any other) real property tax exemption program;
- The right not to be evicted except upon court proceedings;
- The right to a copy of park rules and regulations and a written statement of all fees at the commencement of occupancy;
- The right to have rules and regulations applied uniformly to all tenants;
- The right to be free from unreasonable arbitrary or capricious rules and regulations;
- The right to a thirty-day written notice prior to any change of rules or regulations;
- The right to a ten-day period in order to correct a violation of park rules or regulations;
- The right to a ninety-day written notice prior to increases of fees, charges or assessments; not to have rent increased more than once in any year*effective January 2, 2009;
- The right not to have rent increased more than once a year, effective January, 2009;
- The right to have your security deposit held in trust, in an interest-bearing account and to know the name and address of the bank, for parks consisting of six or more sites;
- The right prior to occupancy to sign a lease for at least a one year term;
- The right to annual lease renewal(s) to all tenants in good standing;
- The right to post a For Sale sign on any manufactured home;
- The right to reasonable notice of any planned disruption of services;
- The right to purchase a manufactured home from whomever you wish, as either a current or prospective tenant;
- The right to have essential services furnished at all times, including water, electricity and heat;
- The right to choose whomever you want as a service-person;
- The right to refuse to purchase equipment from the park owner;
- The right to be free from occupancy restrictions in park rules or leases;
- The right to sell your manufactured home without the requirement that it be removed from the park;
- The right not to pay a sales commission or fee to the park owner unless the park owner acted pursuant to a written agreement; and
- The right to a livable, sanitary and safe park under Warranty of Habitability."
So according to section 233, the right to have "rules and regulations applied uniformly to all tenants would apply in your situation" and "the right to be free from unreasonable arbitrary or capricious rules and regulations". If others tenants were allowed to build additions and you weren't this would be evidence for the Judge to consider like I mentioned before. But this does not solve you long term problem. Your "landlord" cannot retaliate if you bring suit against him/her for 6 months as I mentioned in my previous answer but after that time period according to the month to month tenancy, he could give you 30 days notice and evict you for no reason. You will have to weigh the positives and negatives of your rights under the law in order to ascertain if you do wish to file suit for this situation. You should have a cause of action according to he authority I have cited.
"The New York State Human Right Law (Executive Law, article 15) requires non-discrimination on the basis of disability in public accommodations, including those owned by state and local government entities. Therefore, public buildings, parks, libraries, museums, etc., and any attendant services that constitute public accommodations, such as food service, camp grounds, and other accommodations open to the public, must not deny service to an individual because of disability, pursuant to ***** § 296.2, and must provide accommodation and accessibility as set
forth in § 296.2, subsections (c), (d) and (e). Complaints may be filed with the New York State Division of Human Rights for claims falling within the scope of § 296.2.
Yes it seems that campgrounds do fall under ADA regulations.
